– New semiconductor technologies, used in passive microwave applications, allow the integration of passives with high quality factors and the fabrication of novel RF-MEMS components for switches and tunable capacitors and resonators. The use of these technologies results in a strong reduction of the size and the power consumption of wearable microwave systems. The scaling of silicon transistors, following Moore's law, results in RF-CMOS devices approaching the performance of III-V and SiGe… CONTINUE READING
